safe screening icon Keeping you safe is our top priority. Don’t delay needed care. While our services may look different, MaineHealth remains committed to providing high-quality care, close to home. Learn more about new safety measures in place at all care locations.

Our mission is to provide patients with individualized treatment programs that include both medical and surgical options to realize the common goal of losing weight and improving health. We have a comprehensive team of health care providers including physicians, registered dietitians, nurse practitioners, nurses, and behavioral health specialists who understand there is more to weight loss than just a surgical procedure. We are here to help you achieve your weight loss goals, and help you get back to living your life to the fullest.

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) combined their respective national bariatric surgery accreditation programs into a single unified program to achieve one national accreditation standard for bariatric surgery centers. We are accredited by this Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP®). We achieved this designation by following a rigorous review process during which it proves that we maintain certain physical resources, human resources, and standards of practice. The primary goal of our program and the intent of MBSAQIP is to advance safe, high-quality care for bariatric surgical patients through the accreditation of bariatric surgical centers.

Support Group

For patients who are currently enrolled in our program, we offer an online support group on the first and third Monday of every month. We use a HIPAA-compliant version of the Zoom app to protect your privacy. Please contact Jennifer Hanic at jmhanic@mmc.org if you would like to join the group.

*Meetings are regularly scheduled, unless there is a holiday, then there is NO group meeting.
